Evolution of Influence: Youth Lead seeks to engage global dialogue on how the approach to youth leadership and youth activism has changed over the years. As the access to resources and technology have increased, how has this created innovation and influenced youth leadership development? Presentations will frame discussions on how our work with youth across cultures and sectors has evolved and the impacts youth leadership development have had on how youth live and function in society.
Why a virtual conference? Evolution of Influence: Youth Lead is derived from the need to create opportunities to engage global participants around the topic of youth leadership.
